No: Aleve (naproxen) or Naproxen sodium is not contraindicated in glaucoma, and will not raise your eye pressure. However, aleve-d can be if you have narrow-angle glaucoma. If you are in doubt, check with your eye md.

NSaid's can cause neuritis the can also cause increased BP both bad for glaucoma patients. We take the use of these drugs far to lightly.
